JLR Ingenium engines for Jaguar XE and...

Jaguar names its 3 Series-fighter XE, packs it with Ingenium engines

Jaguar is committed to emerging from the fringes of the luxury car market and into the mainstream. Just take a look at where it was a couple of decades ago and where it is now: In the 1980s, it had essentially two product lines, the XJ sedan and XJ-S coupe/convertible), and now it's got the XK coupe and convertible, the XJ sedan, the XF sedan and wagon and the F-Type coupe and roadster. But it's not about to stop there.

Coventry knows that if it's going to take on the German and Japanese heavyweights, it's going to need a compact sports sedan, and it's not about to repeat the mistake that was the X-Type. To that end, it's long been rumored to be developing a rival to the likes of the BMW 3 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class – it just hasn't given us much to go on. But that changes right here and now.

Wow, that is a beautiful front end! Not overdone at all, just very classy and purposeful. I also like what might be a trend of bringing headlights back to the front of the car, and not having them climb up to the A pillar. I'm very curious to see the rest of the car, because this shot looks excellent.

I guess I'll break the streak, I'm not really a fan of the front. It's too predictable styling wise. I guess that's better than trying something new and having it turn out poorly *cough* Cherokee *cough*.

Is the Taurus going to be all aluminum? If it is, the bad press will continue (warranted or not).
